A Guide for Painting Your Home

Whether you’re planning on selling your home or just want to stand out from the neighbours, the colour and quality of the paint work is a key factor in retaining, or enhancing, your property’s value.

Every house has its own personality and style. As such, when it comes to selecting paint colours and types, you should consider the following points.

Muse on the mood

The mood will depend on your own personality as well as the home’s, so think deeply about this factor before deciding on paint. Are you after a cool and bright mood, or warm and welcoming, or subdued and reflective? These are all key to the choices you will make next. Other considerations for mood will be the interior design and the existing furniture.

Let there be light

The natural light that your house receives, as well as the artificial light your home utilises, are all important dynamics for when it comes to choosing the right colour. Consider the lighting and colour palette of your surroundings – for example, do you want to blend into the trees of nature or stand out from the concrete of the city? Do you want your interiors to absorb the light for warm tones or reflect the brightness? These choices can all have a profound effect.

Pick a professional partner

If you have decided to opt for a professional painting company to do the job, there are a few considerations to keep in mind:

Put professionalism over price

Good results come from a good investment. In order for cheaper companies to offer work at their prices, they will often use under-trained, inexperienced or unprofessional employees, cutting corners with equipment and craftsmanship. Remember that a bad paint job could seriously undervalue your home, so it pays in the long run to get it done right the first time.

Good companies need to maintain their reputation

An experienced company with a diverse portfolio has worked for years to build their status. This reputation is precious and will be maintained by well-trained and professional staff.

Other important points for professional partners

Choose a partner who can work around your time with minimal disruption. If your timetable requires weekend or night-time work, Pelham Painters will adjust to your plans.
